Napier Port's new equipment
Napier Port will add to its Konecranes fleet, with six new lift trucks to be delivered to the terminal in December 2017.

The most recent order from Napier Port includes two Konecranes Liftace R 6-41 MS reachstackers, two Konecranes Liftace FDC 25 K7 DB empty container handlers and two Konecranes Liftace FDC 480 G4 full container handlers.

Another two FDC 480 G4 full container handlers have recently been put into operation in the terminal.
 
As the new reachstackers will handle containers on both ship and rail side, Napier Port has deliberately opted for Liftace R 6-41 MS reachstackers. Being equipped with front side stabilisers, these machines feature up to 41 T capacity in the second row and have a particularly low turning radius. 
 
Warren Young, container operations manager at Napier Port, explains: "Our port is the logistics turnstile of the entire region. Technology from Konecranes has been a key element of our sustainable growth strategy and we are currently operating six Konecranes Gottwald mobile harbour cranes, four of which were delivered over the last four years. As these machines have become an integral part of our operation, it was logical to also opt for lift trucks from Konecranes. We are sure that relying on equipment and aftermarket support from one single supplier will enhance the efficiency of our operations."
“…I'm happy to report that we recently appointed an ideal candidate who found us via the Forkliftaction ad. This speaks volumes from my point of view.” - Hamish Clark, President...
